“Poor Quality Course”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Played as hotel guest, maybe we are spoiled coming from the west coast of Scotland and playing regularly in Algarve, course was at best average municipal, several holes had no bunkers at all, most fairways sloped one way or the other, up and down hill we were tired after walking course but not challanged, greens were slow and felt and looked hairy, would not recommend.

“Lovely course”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Quite a challenging course for the average golfer; well kept and lovely views. Take a few golf balls as the rough can be a little punishing.

“Tough in the wet”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

Superb views from higher tees and fairways. Some of the holes though need to be previewed as a lot are blind and you can get into trouble easily. Lots of sloping fairways, ball above or below your feet a lot and much aiming away from target to allow for slope.

“SHRIGLEY HALL GOLF COURSE”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Spent a couple of days with a group of 12 friends, playing the course. The course is extremely demanding physically, & a tough test of your golfing ability. The condition of the main part of the course, the fairways, tee beds etc, were very well maintained. Unfortunately, I could not say that for the greens. I had read previous reports that they were not up to the standard that one would expect, & they were accurate.
The greens were patchy to say the least, & not in that good a condition. Also they had been treated during the week before, with some sort of dressing in granual form. This made it difficult judging putts for line & distance as they bobbled around on the surface. It was frustrating for us all as the greens had quite a few undulations as well so they would not have been easy if they were perfect. There are quite a number of very tough holes, particularly the 7th & the 17th, & quite a few with very sloping fairways. It definitely was a testing weekend but we did enjoy it. One thing you will definitely need, & that is a buggy. As I've said it is a demanding course, & unless you are young & sprightly, you will struggle to walk round. The average time to complete a round was approx. 5 hours. We would go back again, but hope the greens will be in better condition.

Under staffed - and those that are there could be more enthusiastic and helpful.
Overall: room for improvement.
